If this set had been offered for sale at retail I would have bought one to open and that would have been it.  As it is, a mail-away, I ordered one right off the bat and opened it.  Since then I've ordered at least 5 more, I think.

I'm actually not positive on that number.  I ordered 2 more that I received, I ordered 2 today (Wed) and I got a post card telling me an order I put in wasn't shipping till May.  And honestly, I have no idea how many I ordered that time.  I'd have to dig out the check register it's been so long.

I have ordered 3 Nahdar Vebb figures also, but I probably would have only bought one of him at retail, two tops if I decided to keep one carded.  Again, since it's a mail-away, it's just fun and not overly expensive to just order a few.   :P

Thanks for the replies guys. I guess the eopie is the draw for me here and would be the reason for picking this one up. I already have the evolutions Qui Gon and the poncho on this version doesn't resemble the one he wore in the film too much. Call me crazy, but the closer they match the colors to what we see in the films, the better I like it. On the flip side, from what I've seen, the skin tone looks a little healthier on this guy.

Had a chance to check my account this morning and saw my check cleared on 5/11 for my 2 Eopie w/Qui-Gon.  Hopefully, we'll be seeing them soon.

Okay.  Who had the eopies and Qui Gons sent to my house?

I didn't even send away for any of these.

I got another delay reminder...  7/10 I believe was the date.  It arrived today.

Really? Can you post what it says, please? I mailed away for my figures the Sunday before the deadine (Wednesday), and I haven't received any notices whatsoever. NOT GOOD. :(

It's just like the last delay card but bumps the date to July 15th 2010 for shipping if you've had outstanding orders.  I sent in a little later for some, so this may apply to those.

I received the same card today as Jesse describes above. I sent my form mid/late-February.

Wow, at this rate, Hasbro needs to include some grand-scale apology card (;)) with the Eopies when they arrive in...*sigh*... July. :(

So how much longer til I get my Nahdar Vebb delayed shipping card?  ::)

Those a-holes cashed my check SIX WEEKS AGO, and I've gotten jack shiite.

Hasbro's fulfillment house just plain sucks.

Well to be fair, when was the last time we had such great mail-ins, and 2 in a year, and in the basic line to boot?  And more to come with the Vintage stuff too...

Seriously I'm not complaining at all...  They'll arrive when they arrive, and to be frank, I'm just grateful we were offered such nice mail-aways this past couple years. 

I got 2 Eopies in the mail today, so I'm assuming my card was applicable to the Eopies I mailed in for later getting nearer to the deadline.  I'm guessing the card I got is simply an extension of the last card I got, saying basically, "Tons of people wanted these, we had to make more to satisfy demand, and so we're going to be a little beyond the estimated date of delivery to get you yours which you sent in for before the deadline".

Hasbro obviously could've just said, "Supplies didn't last, sorry, so we're not sending you what you wanted at the last minute", but instead they're making more...  To me, that's pretty above and beyond on their part.

I haven't gotten my Vebb's either, but I'm sure I'll get them eventually...  I'm sure that one's probably going to do as well or better than the Eopie.  It's a whole new figure.

I checked the mailbox last night, and lo and behold I got my 5 Eopies with Qui-Gon Jinns.  Now I have to figure out...what do I do with 5 of these?  In the grand scheme of things they were pretty cheap.  But I'll only NEED perhaps 3 for my own collection.

Recieved my two Eopies today. And here I was expecting another delay postcard.  :)
